Default P4 Users ?

i have a p4 3.06 ghz and was wondering what temps you run at while playing games like call of duty?
i have just had a look at my asus probe (sounds painful) and it told me that my cpu was at 63 degrees that was imediatley after coming from game.

THat's really hot and pretty bad for the cpu. Stock cooling should run around 55-60C. You're a little overboard there my friend. An hour or two here and there won't kill the pc but I would look into upgrading your cooling.

No. The P4 series are good with that temp. According to the list, a P4's temp warning is at 70C

As lhuser said the P4 series is good with heat and i wouldn't worry about that temp. though getting the heat down on anything will make it's life longer.
